What Does The Bible Say About Divorce?

August 6, 2012

What does the bible say about divorce?  This is a question that any Christian marriage considering divorce should ask before making any decisions. I believe a person who ask this question desires to remain in the will of the Lord.  Our society is hooked on doing whatever makes us happy.  In a Christian marriage our happiness is not the top priority.  God’s desire is that we would enjoy our marriage and our life but he does not excuse us from our marriage because we are no longer happy with it.  He created marriage to be a blessing and he came that we might have life and have it more abundantly.  However, if we find ourselves in a marriage that is seemly impossible to bear we must remind ourselves of the vows we have made to God and our spouse.  

In a previous post I explained exactly how God feels about divorce, remarriage and affairs.  In today’s post I want to offer a few resources  such as:  other post I have written, movies and books that will encourage you in your marriage.
